7. Governing Law
7.1 These Terms and any disputes arising under or related to them will be governed by United States federal law and the laws of the State of California, without reference to a state’s conflict of law principles
8.1 Please review this Arbitration provision carefully. It provides that any dispute may be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court and the right to have a jury decide a dispute. Under this provision, your rights may be substantially limited in the event of a dispute. You may opt out of this Arbitration provision by following the instructions below.
8.2 By accepting these Terms, unless you opt out by following the instructions below, you agree that either you or HBY, at HBY’s sole discretion, can choose to have any dispute arising out of or relating to this Program, including, without limitation, these Terms, classes, transactions, your Heather Beltran Yoga account or your relationship with HBY, resolved by confidential, binding arbitration. If arbitration is chosen by any party, neither you nor HBY will have the right to litigate that dispute in court or to have a jury trial on that dispute. Pre-arbitration discovery will be permitted only as allowed by the arbitration rules. In addition, you will not have the right to participate as a representative or member of any class of claimants pertaining to any dispute subject to arbitration. The arbitrator’s decision will generally be final and binding. Other rights that you would have in court may also not be available in arbitration. It is important that you read the entire Arbitration provision carefully before accepting the terms of this Agreement.
8.3 For purposes of this Arbitration provision, “dispute” shall be construed as broadly as possible, and shall include any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract, regulatory, tort or otherwise, whether pre-existing, present or future and including constitutional, statutory, common law, intentional tort and equitable claims) arising from or relating to this Program; these Terms; classes; transactions; your Heather Beltran Yoga account; your relationship with Heather Beltran and HBY; the actions of yourself, HBY, or third parties; or the validity of these Terms or this Arbitration provision. It includes disputes brought as counterclaims, cross claims, or third-party claims. A party that has brought a dispute in a court may elect to arbitrate any other dispute that may be raised in that litigation. Disputes brought as part of a class action or other representative basis are subject to arbitration on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. IF YOU DO NOT OPT OUT, THEN YOU WILL HAVE WAIVED YOUR RIGHT TO INITIATE OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT. In this Arbitration provision, the words “we,” “us,” and “our” shall include HBY and any assignees of any of HBY’s rights, as well as HBY’s and its assignees’ respective affiliates, parents, subsidiaries, franchisees, vendors, suppliers, and further assigns.
8.4 Any arbitration under this Arbitration provision shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the rules applicable to the resolution of consumer disputes in effect when the dispute is filed. The arbitrator shall have no authority to hear any disputes on a class action or representative basis. Neither you nor HBY may consolidate or join the disputes of other persons who may have similar disputes into a single arbitration. You may obtain rules and forms by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879 or visiting www.adr.org. Any arbitration hearing that you attend will take place in the federal judicial district where you reside. HBY will not elect arbitration of any dispute that is filed as an individual matter by you in a small claims or similar court, so long as the dispute is pending on an individual basis in that court.
8.5 A single, neutral arbitrator will decide any disputes. The arbitrator must be either a retired or former judge or a lawyer with no less than 10 years’ experience, selected in accordance with the AAA’s rules. The arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) and applicable statutes of limitations, will honor claims of privilege under applicable law, and will have the power to award to a party any damages or other relief provided under applicable law. Any party may choose to have a hearing and may choose to be represented by counsel. The arbitrator will issue an award in writing and, upon request, will provide a written explanation for the award. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
8.6 The party initiating an arbitration must pay the AAA’s initial filing fee, although you can ask the AAA to waive the filing fee and we will consider your request that we pay the filing fee on your behalf. HBY will pay any subsequent administration fees imposed by the AAA, and HBY will pay the arbitrator’s fee for up to one day of hearings. All other fees will be allocated as provided by the AAA’s rules and applicable law. If you prevail in arbitration, HBY will reimburse you any fees paid to the AAA. However, even if HBY prevails, it will not seek reimbursement from you of any fees HBY paid to the AAA unless the arbitrator determines that your dispute was brought in bad faith. Each party shall bear its own costs of attorneys, experts, and witness fees, regardless of which party prevails in the arbitration. However, if applicable substantive law gives you the right to seek reimbursement of attorneys’ fees or other fees or costs, then that right shall also apply in the arbitration.
8.7 You have the right to opt out of this Arbitration provision, but you may only do so in the first 30 days after registering for a Heather Beltran Yoga account. In order to opt out, you must write us at Heather Beltran Yoga firstname.lastname@example.org You must inform us of your decision to opt out, and sign the notice. This Arbitration provision shall survive termination of your participation in the Program. This Arbitration provision is made in connection with interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 USC Sections 1 through 16. If any part of this Arbitration provision is determined to be void or unenforceable, then this entire Arbitration provision shall be considered null and void; however, it shall not affect the validity of the rest of this agreement.
